Via Ed Asner’s official Twitter account, the veteran actor of stage, screen, and TV has passed this morning at the age of 91.

Besides being a legendary actor, famous for his role as Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Asner was quite the voice actor.  He garnered 3 Daytime Emmy nominations for his work which included Fish Police, Batman, Captain Planet and the Planeteers (1st nomination), Gargoyles, Freakazoid, Spider-Man (2nd nomination), WordGirl (3rd nomination), The Boondocks, and most recently American Dad.  His finest work, of course, being that of Carl Fredricksen on Pixar’s Up in 2009 which won 2 Oscars including Best Animated Feature.
